    Web Browser Replacement

    Hi

    I've been doing some googling and forum-searching but can't seem to find anything recent on a replacement for the IE-based web browser in visual studio.

    I have an internal company webpage which does not render properly in the default browser, so I'm looking to replace it with something that works better - Firefox maybe - but all the links I've found seem to be quite dated.

    What's the current thinking on the best route for replacing the web browser?

    Thanks!

    CefSharp library uses Chromium which is not so outdated like IE:

    It is a bit tricky to setup the project for compilation and debugging (explicitly set to 32 or 64 bit) but then is quite easy to use it.

    Thanks - I've seen references to that but thought it was c only, not VB. I'll give it a try.
